This is a boutique hotel with a high level of security and is not as hectic as other 5 star establishments.It is located at the edge of the city center but shops and restaurants can be reached by a few minutes walk. The nearby Forbury Gardens in front of the hotel is a credit. The decoration style is traditional and...

What an unbelievable surprise! This was outstanding food with great service - the best I've had for a long time. I had never visited Reading before let alone the Hotel & Restaurant - I booked because it was convenient for meetings I had & that's the only reason I was there. The hotel & restaurant are beautifully furnished but I...

We stayed here the night before and the night of our Wedding where the ceremony and reception was held. It was nothing short of sensational. The food in the bar, at Breakfast and at the Wedding reception was superb and at all stages the service was exemplary. I really do not think we could have picked anywhere better. We also...

This is a must of you find yourself staying in Reading or need a lux quick break away from London. Superb decor and service. On site cocktail bar and Cerise restaurant if you want to hide away in the hotel. Great location for wandering around on foot yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle if you do decide to...

I have stayed here a few times now in the services apartments. Extremely good value for money. Staff always helpful and cheerful and the apartments are always immaculate. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I come to Reading.

Would highly recommend this hotel. We got upgraded to a superior room because we wanted a bathtub and it was spectacular. The staff were super attentive, the hotel was super clean. The amenities in the room were just something else. The only small thing was the check out time. Most hotels are now midday but it was 11am here...however, you...

We stayed in the luxury suite and it was as is says. Wow it was amazing room. I booked this last minute for my wife's birthday. Finding the car park was a bit of a challenge but all ok. We came in the back way which bought us in through the cocktail bar which was lovely. The reception was very...

I've been staying here for years, in the long-term apartments for extended stay business travel. The units are large and beautiful, very quiet, the kitchens and bathrooms modern and well-appointed, and the hotel staff service responsive and excellent. The location is great, on the pretty Forbury park and close to Oracle shopping and Town Centre, and the train station /...

We had a very nice stay at the Forbury. Our room was spacious and excellent with every amenity. Front desk was beautifully friendly and service oriented. However, the breakfast selection was a bit poor and the staff did not fully understand the finer details of the orders (such as two fried eggs over easy, which came in as two sunny...
